special suit that lot of people call a miracle. here's fox's hal eisner. >> reporter: you'ring log at a promotional video offering wheelchair bound paraplegic as chance to walk again, hike again, go up and downstairs again, robotic legs, they look like something right out of a science fiction movie. in 2007, steven wilson was in a wreck so bad he's lucky to be alive. he's walking with the help of robotic legs from row walk robotics that until recently were only used in physical therapy centers. now fda approved them for personal use specifi specificalh spinal cord injuries like steven has. >> we watch as he came to the center in his wheelchair. slid into another chair so he could slide into the legs. got special shoes on. was buckled into the chair. outfitted were it backpack that has the computer and battery and there's a controller, and up he goes. >> it's not as easy as it was to
5:47 pm
walk before my injury but walking around it's not too tiring. as long as the terrain is pretty flat and smooth. >> it has a tilt sensor that's on the pelvis or the torso and basically just like, you know, tilt sensor in your iphone basically it's going to react to little changes in motion. so every time a person shifts their weight from 1 foot to the next foot, the tilt sensor senses it and it tells the foot to move forward. >> reporter: wilson says it isn't always that easy. >> sometimes we're battling eve other much it's a little bit of a struggle but, you know, i think therapy is struggle, you know. it's a long road ahead to overcome a spinal cord injury and it's not easy so i mean that's part of the struggle. >> reporter: this device really isn't all that cheap. $69,500. not covered by insurance yet. but they're working on that. the cost versus the benefits company officials say it can help your circulation, it can also improve pain management.
5:48 pm
most of all, it can help somebody walk. we're in long beach. hal eisner, fox news. >> that's amazing. >> incredible. >> yeah. >> how about this? apparently little white lie which is strengthen relationships? >> well, so say psychologists from oxford university. i don't know. they say stretching the truth to protect someone's feelings can be a good thing. i can understand that. actually help you and your partner form a tighter bond but lying here's the distinction so everybody please take note here, lying to cover up some type of miss deed obviously hurts your relationship and leaves you feeling lonely and isolated. so what's considered a white lie? excellent question. let's say telling someone you like their haircut when you're in the a huge fan or no honey the pants look fabulous on you. something like or liking something on facebook when you really don't. that's how that try and clear it up. okay. >> well back to your fox 29 weather authority now. we had some pretty severe storms. >> yes, we did. >> last night in our area. whole different story today. >> turning the corner from the

5:50 pm
sections of vermont and massachusetts as well as new hampshire connecticut reports of tornadoes over the last several days with that system. an area of low pressure that's pulling away but it will be bringing some drier air in our forecast. the low this morning, 69 degrees. the afternoon high 84. that's below average. we should top out in the upper 80s this time of year. sunsets this evening at 8:18. looking at those temperatures right no, upper 70s, low 80s for most of but 60 degrees in the poconos where showers moved through and kind of cooled the atmosphere a lot. look at the dew point. the measure of moisture in the atmosphere. any time it's below 60 it starts to feel a little more comfortable dew points dropping into the 50s pretty much area wide. so that means lowering humidity as we move into the overnight. open up the windows let some of that fresh air in. for tomorrow, a lot of sunshine. dry below average temperatures. many locations will struggle to make it to get this 80 degrees tomorrow. by the middle of the week it stays comfortable.
5:51 pm
the humidity will remain low as well. so kind of locked in this pattern a trough toward sections of the east. a ridge out west. most of the oppressive heat and humidity stays to the west and our temperatures will stay below average as we are dealing with that air mass from canada drawing in some of the drier air. here's a look at ultimate doppler with the front. you can see hoy pressure moving in behind it. all of the heat, humidity and storms to the south along and out ahead of that system not having to deal with severe weather as we move into tonight. in fact take look as thing play out tuesday lot of sunshine. dry conditions moving into your tuesday night looking pretty quiet. by the middle of the week, still stuck in that pattern with lot of sunshine and pleasant conditions across our area. so look at the temperatures for tonight. 56 degrees in the suburbs. low 60s in the city. winds out of the northwest for your tuesday we're looking at mostly sunny conditions. 80 degrees will be the high temperature. in fact, i said most of the suburbs will stay in the 70s for

high temperatures tomorrow. and then look at wednesday. low 80s. sun and clouds. mixing as we move into thursday. low 80s continuing for friday. the upcoming weekend. friday and saturday and sun today there could be a pop up showers and storms. but the bottom line, it's summer and we're not talking about 90-degree heat or heat wave right now. >> that's all right. it will be fine. >> 80 social security good. thank you very much, scott. >> in october it is. let's get you back out to novacare complex and howard eskin. you know how we were talking those little skirmish i'm not getting along with scott and lucy right now and those below average temperatures much it's just a minor thing. >> it will be on t in. z next time you turn around. be careful. we'll all be part of it. what the heck? >> the eagles actually had an open practice today, but more importantly, if you don't think these guys work and you think that's all it is, they're still in there some of them still in the novacare complex for meetings. they practiced across the street at the linc. some of the players are in the indoor facility going through
